Order an Official Transcript
For students who attended WCU during or after 1985
Current and former students (who attended during/after 1985) must log into myWCU to order an official transcript. Students will access the Parchment storefront from myWCU. Students who attended prior to 1985 will create an account directly on the Parchment website. Current classes that are in-progress and not yet graded will not show on transcript. If a term has recently ended, wait until grades are posted to order a transcript.

The first time ordering a transcript from Parchment, the student must set up an account. The student will be asked to verify information that is needed to validate identity.

Once the identifying information has been entered, click the Create Account & Continue button.
A confirmation email will be sent so that Parchment can confirm your identity.
